Kid Rock threatens to shoot future home invaders after break-in attempt

Kid Rock is starring in his own post-apocalyptic Detroit video game, where the Castle Doctrine is king.

“I will not hesitate to shoot,” he warned any future house-robbers after a man allegedly was caught on surveillance video attempting to break in to his Michigan home over the weekend.

The suspect was apprehended by police after Kid Rock, aka Robert Ritchie, offered a $5,000 reward to anyone who could identify him from the surveillance footage, according to the New York Daily News. The intrepid — or just incredibly dumb — criminal rammed Kid Rock's gate with his van and then emerged on crutches (??) to try and break in through the front door.

“I am an avid hunter and marksman,” Kid Rock warned on his blog.

So take heed, all slow-moving men on crutches who may wish the musician's family harm.
